Turbulence modelling error
Hey guys,

I am a newbie and I was trying to do a turbulence modelling. The flow is inside a large duct and the velocity is very high. I was modeling the 2d case and prepared a udf for inlet velocity, dissipation rate and turbulent kinetic energy as explained in the user guide. As i started the iteration, even before it goes through the first iteration, it gives me this error:

turbulent viscosity limited to viscosity ratio of 1.000000e+005 in 341000 cells

I tried to change the limit of viscosity ratio to a higher value, but still it gives me a similar error.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance,
